Drake’s ‘Nothing Was The Same’ By The Numbers

Drake - Nothing Was The Same

Numbers are important to Drake: times, area codes and dollar amounts fill his music with about as much frequency as shout-outs to his hometown of Toronto. On his lush, ambitious new album Nothing Was The Same, Drake is taking us back to zero, dialing back some of the excesses of his first two albums and attempting to craft a record that cuts to the core of who Aubrey Graham really is. There’s a reason the album’s cover art features a baby Drizzy gazing off into the clouds at his older reflection.

While we’re still digesting the record, which leaked late last night but doesn’t officially hit the streets until September 24, XXL decided to break down the album by looking at the cold hard facts. It’s tough to separate Drake from emotions, but we did it here, taking apart Nothing Was The Same by the numbers.
